Rush Print is a new annual publication coming out from the graphic design department of ArtEZ Arnhem (GDA). Rush Print is new magazine annually releasing out from the contributors of Grafisch Arnhem. Throughout spreads, it contains graphic design related subjects such as Types, Time, Talks, etc.
The inaugural issue focuses on the topic of ‘Bad Type’, initiated by Dong Bin Han and Benjamin McMillan. A loose synonym of bad in this book is amateur or ugly which is what contributors deliver as a student. The content ranges from interviews, workshops and anecdotes with GDA participants. The entire publication is typeset in student-made typefaces so the book also functions as a type specimen.
“May we want to reckon the time of the position ‘student’ not from the progressive aspect of amateur towards pro. Besides the fact that every step of life is an ongoing learning, there’s a clear physical (virtual) circumstance of school and an educational boundary for student, which makes student’s moment independent from any other vocations. Extra time of working on one subject with mistakenly expended deadlines, being experimental and anti-aesthetic by testing its performance, the growth on having own tone of (visual) voice while mumbling and simultaneously thinking the mumbling can be also a kind of voice. There are untamed beauties in this position.”
